This vine is native to pakistan. Here in lahore it is not much seen except in few areas including main feroz pur road. It blooms first year and yellow blooms are exotic. It start blooming late in summer but blooms heavily till november. It is evergreen here and grows fast. I saw few bees chewing its leaves. If in pot, make it pot bound for blooming.
